Hear hear Barry!
Telecom have gone and started something here. De-peering is definitely
worse than being anal about your DNS, but I think it stinks. The Internet
in NZ has lost a lot of it's former free love. :P Us down here in
Christchurch pay an almighty sum to a handful of providers to get bandwidth
down here, and we don't put these kinds of restrictions in place. In
Auckland where bandwidth flows like water, they really must be desperate to
save some traffic and hardware costs.
I guess the customers don't see the backhanded business that goes on in the
technical world, so nobody is loosing face over it. Perhaps Juha could
write it up. ;)

And everyone follows suit (not only inspire, but I hear telstra clear's also
doing it), what's the point!
ISP's worried a little DNS traffic is costing them money, maybe hardware
doesn't cope; well it has in the past! What's this country coming to, first
de-peering, now dns restrictions, it would appear the internet for NZ is
getting worse and worse as the years go on!
